A link profile only becomes distorted when one does not know the rate and diversity / type of inbound links that need to be built.
So tell me, how does one determine this rate and diversity? Do you think the majority of people who embark on these campaigns would be able to determine that?
Take the $10k each month and build something worth linking to. Create applications. Infographics. Contests. Giveaways. Etc...
The last thing you want to do is chase links - they should be chasing you.
One Tweet on Twitter is like sending out 1,000 link requests if you have the right following. Spend your money and your time wisely.
